Trolling motor blade cover.
7/4/15 @ 10:18 AM
I got tired of worrying about the blades of my trolling motor tearing a hole in my boat cover. So I had this Frisbee just laying around. I drilled a couple holes and attached a small bungee cord to it to secure it to the motor. The Frisbee was just the right size. Now there are no points from the blade to poke through the canvas. http://www.frontiernet.net/~jaycub/trollingmotorcover.jpg

Thats a great idea! I sewed a patch of thin but strong plastic onto my boat cover where it touches the blades when I don't have my front seat in that seemed to work decently. I always make sure to turn off my master power though too to make sure it doesn't start spinning and tear a big hole through the cover lol

I use to use a towel too. Make sure to unplug the trolling motor or turn it off. Being the guy that could tear up a junk yard. That's what my dad said anyway. I left the motor on and as I went down the road I guess the tarp kept hitting the power button. When i got home and was uncovering the boat I put my hand on the trolling motor and it was red hot. Not smart learned a lesson there. I sure do miss my Dad!
